Snow!

Colorado Vacation Part 1: Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak

So…the 52 week photo project kind of fell apart. In early June, we took a Colorado road trip. I decided to try taking driving photos in addition to my regular photos this time. The driving photos are compiled in this video. We spent 1 day […]

Craziest Texas Winter I Have Ever Seen

After the 3 or so inches of snow we got Christmas eve, I figured we wouldn’t see much more snow this winter. Boy was I wrong. February 11, we had a forecast snowfall of 1 to 3 inches for the day. The beginning of the […]

Merry White Christmas to You!

My first white Christmas! Unfortunately, it created some travel problems, and the kids did not get to see what Santa brought them until this afternoon. Yesterday was the closest to blizzard conditions that I have ever seen. The cows looked miserable soon after we got […]

Well, after the snow last Thursday, the high today was almost 90 degrees. Here is a picture of the house last Friday morning about 8:00. The snow had mostly melted on the streets, sidewalks, and driveways, but there were still patches of ice in places. […]

Crazy Weather

Crazy Weather

The weekend was beautiful and spring-like, so I actually washed the Explorer, which hadn’t been washed in who knows how long. I should have known, nothing can bring on rain faster than me washing a car. Monday was warm and humid; I felt like I […]
